Hey I’m Priscilla, a.k.a Priscilla the Great. Usually, I like to talk about how my life got a little crazy after I learned about my special powers. Okay, it got a lot crazy. I mean, you try going through middle school with fire shooting out of your fingers. Awkward. But this time, it’s not about me. Twin Shorts is all about my little brothers, Charlie and Chester, a.k.a The Devil Twins.

Priscilla the Great
Hey, I’m Priscilla and all I want is to be a normal seventh grader. That’s hard enough with an older brother annoyingly obsessed with Christina Aguilera, mischievous baby twin brothers who could scare the sin off of Satan, and parents more puzzling than a Rubik’s cube in the Bermuda triangle. But when psycho assassins start trying to kill me and my family, being normal is impossible.

this is a really short stories. Priscilla back and reading her english papers using her brothers as subject material. It really does sound like a teenager talking about younger brothers. Priscilla hints about family secrets but in her assignments does not say what they are. I really enjoy Priscilla and her family look forward to reading more about her.

I absolutely LOVE this book! It is such a fun read and definitely lifts your mood if you're feeling down. Whenever I started reading this book, I became totally immersed in the storyline and to me that indicates a great book. I also recommend Sybil Nelson's others books, they are hilarious and the writing is superb!

A clever collection of short stories of a "tormented" a word I use lightly middle girl in a family of boys and the crazy moments that make up her world as told in her own words. It would be a delight for any girl to read.

Great little stories. Good to read and I can relate to the charactors very well as they seem like my own children.

Wonderful stories. I especially loved her 'most proudest moment' and 'boob boy'. Plus I loved her new word... 'pathetical'. This is a really fun read. Be sure to check it out. Priss has a new fan... gotta love that girl! (and her mischievous little brothers.)

This collection of short stories acts as an excellent introduction not only to the world of “Priscilla the Great” but also to the inimitable writing style of Sybil Nelson.

In this work “Twin Shorts” Sybil has fashioned a series of deftly hilarious sketches that take the form of school essays written by the aforementioned Priscilla, who is - rarely for Young Adult fiction - a believably frank and witty narrator.

Creating any child/teen narrative voice in fiction is a great challenge. The two traps into which writers usually fall in this regard are; either to write in an unrealistically wise and complex fashion; or, to write too simplistically, using too much slang and abbreviation.
In all her writing, Sybil walks the line between those two potential pitfalls quite brilliantly, creating authentic voices that young adult readers can engage with and enjoy.

I have no doubt that it is only a matter of time until the whole “Priscilla the Great” series is a considerably huge publishing success.

Furthermore, the story in “Twin Shorts” concerning an unfortunate boy named Billy is quite simply one of the wittiest things I have read in ages, regardless of the books target age.
